The day has arrived where we reflect on the years, months, weeks, and hours that we dedicated our focus to make tomorrow happen. Tomorrow we push off to start our new adventure that has awaited us. Tonight, we sit quietly, in our own thoughts, reflecting on our own stories. On the pat tales we created … Continue reading Tomorrow
And a new Log Book to begin logging our journey. Our first entry will be either May 20th or 21st. It's surreal to think that after living in this marina for 17 months, and Portland for 18 years, we will be parting ways by boat. Log Book - Volume 1
This will be a gritty post - no fluff just facts. In a March post we listed the big projects we wanted to complete that month including installing Block and Tackle for the Dinghy Davits. We did well with the Spinnaker Pole guys remaining. Give me a fist bump. Boom In April, our list included … Continue reading Where are we on our Project List?
